Conditional Layer utility for Watchout

Conditional Layer Utility app

An app in development for managing Watchout conditional layers.

Conditional Layers are a handy way to manage layer visibility in Watchout and can also be used for conditional switching of command cues but, with multiple conditions, managing state becomes difficult. The Conditional Layer app is designed to make it easy to switch specific layers, or groups of layers, without affecting the state of other layers and without having to memorise binary notation! Layers can be switched using network commands sent from Watchout, or manually in the user interface.
